Breakdown

Diary of Anne Frank Description: A simple diary discovered after World War II shares the inmost thoughts and wishes of a young girl, Anne Frank, forced to live in an attic hiding from the Nazis. The story is too real, too poignant to be fiction. This Pulitzer Prize and Tony award winning play not only shares a young girl’s life during wartime, but also explores the longings and dreams of all young girls. Innocence and youthful spirit are unquenched by circumstance, as Anne still discovers the world looking at the sky through a crack in the roof.

Mr. Frank – 40-50, Kind, intelligent father to Anne and Margot

Miep – 20-40 – A young woman dedicated to the cause of freedom, brave, soft-spoken

Mrs. Van Daan – 40-50 Elegant and wealthy woman, strained by sacrifice and stress

Mr. Van Daan – 40-50 Husband of Mrs. Van Daan, business man who has lost everything but still proud

Peter Van Daan – 14-19 Teenage son of of the Van Daan’s, shy, introspective

Mrs. Frank – 40-50 – Anne’s mother, loving but bitter about her situation, terrified of the future

Margot Frank – 19-23 – Anne’s sister, frail, lovely, kind

Anne Frank – 12-15 – An extraordinary human being at any age, bright, effervescent, curious, with an unquenchable spirit and love of life. The play is her story.
